Trump's children Eric, Donald Jr. and Ivanka staged an intervention with him recently over his increasingly unhinged rants about Obama-and they may have gotten through to him.

The power of shame actually works on the DumbaldTM?

At long last he has some?

Um, well okay then.

Oh fark him. He was born a millionaire and ran like four companies into bankruptcy. He doesn't know shiat. He can't even get a proper rug.

Good for them. He's really been making a fool out of himself, I mean, more than normal.

He certainly has run four companies into bankruptcy, This begs the question, how in the hell is he still able to be in that kind of position (CEO/Celebrity)? Is there some charismatic shielding that I cannot see?

My previous employer had to close down his business because he was crazy and chased all of his business partners away, one by one. He was in business for 20 years. The destruction took about 6 years total, but things went downhill after his longtime business partner split up with him in disgust. I am now working for the company he started.

This was supposedly in October by the article. So it didn't stop him from openly calling for an insurrection after Obama was declared the winner.

So I'm going with this is all bullshiat.

In any event I'll Funny that one as soon as the button becomes available while I'm pondering my other options here.

The source suggests that the kids may have been motivated as much for their dad's reputation as their own:
"They want their dad to get respect and then the whole family does well," the source says. "They told him you can't throw this all away on this nonsense."


Uh, Trump has had a reputation as a narcissistic loon for as long as he's had that stupid hair-piece. He's never really commanded respect from anyone who didn't care about his didn't read People magazine or watch reality shows.

Trump says no:

The dying NY Daily News put out a false report about my kids not wanting me to criticize Obama...totally false!

The dishonest NY Daily News reporter advised my rep in writing, "story is dead" and then put it out anyway. A total lie and she knew it!


But then again, he says a lot of things.

America has no shortage of wealthy celebrities who are so disillusioned they really believe people want to hear their opinions. But most of those arsehole actors, models and rock stars in Hollywood did not have the benefit of a Richie Rich childhood and the finest education money could buy like Mr. Trump did. A lot of new money is absolute trash, just ask Paris Hilton. It's the old money like the Rockefeller / Du Pont / Astor or Vanderbilt families that handle themselves, for the most part, with civility and grace.

Not that Paris Hilton isn't trash, but I really didn't think the Hiltons qualified as "new money".

Just for grins I looked up "Hilton Family" and their Wikipedia page says Conrad Hilton was born in 1887. Paris Hilton is his great granddaughter. Paris's grandfather is a billionaire and on the Forbes 400 list of richest people.

How old does the money have to be before it is no longer considered "new money"?

Can we hear Trump sing "Walkin' on Sunshine"?

Actually if Trump were huffing cans of compressed dust cleaner it would explain a lot about his behavior.

heap: makes you wonder how many people have tried interventions about that thing on his head.


Hmm, I wonder if he has a personal bodyguard who watches it while he sleeps, and makes sure no one runs off with it.

Or perhaps he drops it in an aquarium at night, so it can be with others of its own kind.
 
2012-11-25 07:42:29 AM
The main source of Trump's wealth is his big mouth, not his business insight. Thus he's not going to stop yakking anytime soon. A snake oil salesman is all about branding and exposure and as long as there's people paying attention to him, there will be no shortage of advertisers eager to latch on if for only a few minutes to get a piece of his audience. Cha Ching.

The only way to get rid of him is to completely ignore him.

Hey, that's how I got my start with computers. I build them now (I'm competent with software but not enough to charge people - just physically build or repair them). Was a bartender for years and still gig here and there mostly because I like the lifestyle). Yes, I have a degree but it's in philosophy, so...

I see your point, but Trump's failures are worse because he continuously touts his business acumen as a reason to take him seriously. Dude is a celebrity these days, and that's hardly deserving of real respect.

America has no shortage of 'Average Joes' who are so disillusioned that they believe people want to hear their opinions, but people never bring that up when they're bashing celebs for it.

The only difference is that they do it more publicly. The rest of us hang out on Fark. It's when you reachnTed Nugent or Donald Trump proportions that it becomes anything other than what we all do...
 
2012-11-25 09:10:12 AM
How can we be sure Donald Trump even has children? He hasn't shown us their birth certificates. They could have been born to anyone. He could have simply bought these kids, to harvest hair from them for hairpiece-crafting. What is he trying to hide? This could be Huge!

I have a right-wing evangelical friend I've known since high school... he has repeatedly criticized Obama for his arrogance. Before the GOP primary field was clearly defined late last year, he had declared his support for both Gingrich and Trump.

The ensuing face palm broke my nose.

His ranting is certainly having an impact on his brand and chasing people away. Something the kids might be worried about.

For example: On my last trip to New York, thought it would be cool to eat in the restaurant at Trump Tower. Food was pretty good, but not a chance in hell I ever set foot in one of his establishments again.

The question I have for Mr. Trump is why don't you shave your head and wear a fedora. A nice fedora and pipe would at least make him look sorta' normal. Or, maybe a lolipop and pair of aviator glasses.
